Hello from British Columbia, CA
Hi! I'm based on Vancouver Island, BC, Canada, and do field work all over BC.
I work for a company that does civil engineering, mainly for forestry and other resource industries. I went back to school in my late 20's and had an awesome time getting my Civil Engineering Technology diploma. I have about 6 years of experience now, and the more I learn.... the more questions I have.
We use total stations, robotic total stations, RTK gear, and we have a simple depth sounder for bathymetry. Sometimes we're right in town, but usually we're hiking through the remote woods. We do site surveys, design work, construction supervision/layout, and inspections. It's the perfect mix.
As the company grows, I've taken on a role where I help maintain and write SOPs for the survey gear, train new hires in surveying, and troubleshoot anything related to geomatics. You can imagine that I was pleased to find this site 🙂
Hope you're all having a great day!
Welcome... I look forward to reading your stories of surveying in the north country.
Thanks for logging on!
I look forward to the exchange of information.

Sounds like BCIT. Welcome from a fellow C&S grad, 1984.
